Hinote Ultra II

Found a Hinote Ultra II for dirt cheap. Turned out to be a 133MHz version, with 32MB ram and 1.3GB drive. Windows 95 is installed, but it seems to be missing some drivers. Battery and floppy drive seems to be dead, and unfortunately the top trackball button seems to be dead too. I need to dissasembl...

HotRod 200LX

Picked up a dirty 200LX that would not start up (due to dead batteries) and had a missing hinge. Turns out this particular 200LX had been upgraded: speed doubled and 8MB RAM. I have a couple of other 200LX around, one of them does not start up (it just churns a continuous tone when power/batteries a...

Re: I don't understand bitcoin ...

Bitcoin is yet another ponzi scheme, just as the current fiat based monetary system.

Only gold and silver are money. Everything else is DEBT.

Re: SGI back in the black - cash up, earnings up, revenue pu

Forget about equities. Stock markets are rigged. It's all being pumped by Fed money printing (QE to infinity). Few human traders left, mostly HFT algos trading with themselves. Just look at those poor fools who bought AAPL at 700 believing the MSM talking heads spinning stories about AAPL blasting o...

Re: Firefox 3.0.19 in beta

Downloaded and tried to install, but lots of gtk2 deps needed (I have self compiled gtk2 stuff on my o2, FF2.0.22pre worked fine with them).
I'll have to find another drive in which to install nekoware and try out FF3.0.19.

IBM 100DX4/Tp and PCI cards

Hello, Been away a while, and in this time I managed to find the IBM Valuepoint 100DX4/Tp (mini-tower). This is a 100MHz 486DX4 box, and I have one with ISA and PCI slots (there is a version with ISA and MC). I'm having troubles getting the PCI cards to work. They just are not recognized. ISA cards ...

Re: Lucent/Orinoco OEM reflashing to first party

Hello,
I believe if you installed the card in a Powerbook, it would also be flashed to a Lucent/Orinoco (you have to download Orinoco drivers).
Try with OS 8.6 or OS 9.X

NeXT MO 256MB cartridge in newer MO drives?

Tried to use a NeXT 256MB MO disk in a Sony 5.2GB MO unit (SMO-F551). Drive sucked the cartridge in and spun a while, then repeated and audible spin cycle again and again. Drive never mounted nor stopped spinning until I ejected the disk by pressing the eject button on the unit. PDF and online docs ...

Re: Floppy Disks

I recently obtained a 5 1/4" external floppy drive. Tried a few old floppies that have been boxed for...over a decade. They all worked perfectly. Tape is supposed to be the best and most durable backup. MO would come in at second.

Re: not enough ranting ...

The author of this "opinion" on the NYT is a liar. Wall Street is NOT pure capitalism . It is CRONY capitalism. Or even worse....fascism. In real capitalism, when you go broke, YOU DON'T GET BAILED OUT BY THE TAXPAYER. The author has no idea what capitalism is (or wants the sheeple to beli...
